Glad to see you found your way over here to our little neck of the woods!
I'm so sorry about your accident. You aren't alone, however, several here have received their implants because of some pretty serious car accidents.
Several of the latest SCS'ers have received the Boston Scientifics and are getting good reviews. The Reps seem to work wonderfully with the patients in getting the right programs to cover the area in need of pain signal interruption via the stimulaltion.
I think you'll be pleased with what you read, although not all implants are for everyone. It is a very individualized form of pain therapy and there is quite a process in getting the unit, but you can get a pretty good idea of what patients are saying by reading thru some of the threads.
Others will join in on your new thread and be of great support and gladly answer any questions and concerns you may have.
Meanwhile, here's a good information piece on the basic frequently asked questions:
The best part of the process is the fact that we get to do a 'trial period' with the implant to give an idea of how well it may work for us before making the commitment of getting one. I'm sure your Dr has explained all this to you, but feel free to ask anything!
It'll be good getting to know you! You've certainly found the right place.
We continually learn and grow from one another and the support here is wonderful. People from several different countries have jumped aboard our forum!
Glad you're here!
